Customer Reviews of Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD)
Fast and good price12/19/2013
Very good SSD. I can't complain but it's way cheaper now than when I bought this item.
Place for computer components9/6/2013
Searched high and low for great prices on a new, quality SSD. ATD not only had the item, but also had it to me early. Secure, original packaging too.
Packaging could not have been better - would have survived a drop kick to the door. Speed was also surprising. You get more than you pay for with aSavings. No I don't own stock, just happy to have a good supplier of real merchandise.
A reliable brand paired with some cost cutting measures makes a reliable but cheap SSD. Im all good with this. Plug in install OS and its all ready to go, works as expected without hassle. Having said that, this uses TLC NAND, im a regular consumer so the reduced life of the NAND is not an issue for me. overall a good SSD
great for what it does, speed and value8/2/2013
a lot of people wonder what the difference is between this and the 840 pro, basically the read speeds are the same but the write speeds on this are pretty mediocre for an ssd. however, if you are using this solely as a boot drive, then read speed is all you care about and then this ssd is a winner, competing with all the big boys in terms of windows 8 load times. fantastic ssd, and great value for the money.
Solid State Drives are here to stay6/25/2013
Many sellers of Samsung drives,. I like the ease of installation and the included software
Speeds up performance, but not much for an older P6/24/2013
This SSD does not come with cables, so make sure you have an extra power cable and SATA cable. My motherboard is fairly old (AMD Athlon) so my PC did not gain as much speed as a newer PC would be able to. I was hoping it would help with the frame rate while playing games, but I do not see a noticeable difference. I do notice that I have fewer slow-downs in fps, but not a higher max fps. The software (CD) that comes with this SSD was really easy to use to copy all my hard drive data and I did not have to change anything in my bios - it automatically detected that the OS was on the SSD after I restarted.
very good and fats6/20/2013
It loads everything very very fast.
Faster than spinning platters5/20/2013
SSDs are always faster than spinning disk, and this was an upgrade for my system. I'm happy so far!
Blazing fast, still not up to specs4/18/2013
Easy install, made my laptop blazing fast, but benchmarks still show low random speeds, tried to do everything I could. Only buy if on sale, not worth MSRP price
these are great drives to upgrade old pc to give it a kick and in new pc would not leave home without it.
Incorrect product specs on 120G version4/12/2013
At the time of my purchase, the information online did not match the information on Samsung's packaging. The specs on the package indicate slower performance. Take note: -Regarding read/write the box says: " read and write speeds up to 530MB/s and 130MB/s" -Regarding IOPS the box says:" IOPS up to 86,000" If specs matter to you, make sure you're comparing based on the right information
SSD = Speed4/9/2013
Puts life into my older C2D laptops.
The second best SSD.3/25/2013
This is the second best SSD on the market.
installing the item was super easy.
Totally revived my old laptop3/19/2013
I bought it for my old Dell Inspiron D820 laptop. It gave the laptop new life: slow to boot and slow to open programs before, now everything seems to be blazing fast. Very happy with this drive.
So much better and faster than others that I tried like Crucial.
